Beautiful tradition Dublin pub. My wife ordered the fish chowder which she says is the best she has ever had. I ordered a chicken and blue cheese salad which was also great. Also had a few pints whilst sheltering from the rain :) great pub and worth a visit!

Sunday we had traditional Irish music which was fantastic but the place had such a good atmosphere and the staff were so welcoming we found ourselves stopping off there every night of our holidays!! It is definitely worth a visit...it's a traditional Irish bar with... More

Visited Nancy Hands a couple of times with a large group in August. We had dinner and lunch here as well as a few beverages! The food is very good, we sat upstairs and liked the unusual seating and took in the inside of the bar/restaurant. Service was good when the food came out, we sometimes found it a little... More

It has an attractive old fashioned exterior with stained glass, and the inside was just as gorgeous. Very friendly and attentive bartenders and bus boys! Although we only stayed for some pints of Guinness and a couple of Bacardi Breezers,... More

We saw this offer at a tourist´s office when we asked for some traditional irish evening show. We reserved and paid it at the tourist office, you get food + show included in the price. We chose this one over other offers because it is meant for a smaller number of guests, so we would not have to worry to... More
